Do you like to watch Dr. House?

Asthma: "Do I look like an idiot?" from Gabe Perez on Vimeo.

Let me tell you about two movies I have recently watched.
I have watched the two Oscar winning movies: The Black Swan and The King's Speech.
Both of them have something great to tell us. What the former has told me is that there is always a white and a dark side in each of us and that each masterpiece, each accomplishment, needs sacrifice.

Have you seen them? What ideas did you find interesting in King's Speech? how about Black Swan?

You can also tell us about another interesting movie you have seen BUT PLEASE DO NOT RETELL THE MOVIE SUBJECT, write ONLY about what you have learned from it ( DON'T WRITE MORE THAN 50 WORDS)

Looking forward to your movie suggestions!

In the clip below you are going to see what people have (just) done. Try to guess before the interviewer answers the question.

After you have watched the video and done the exercise, pass on to the challenge below

Your turn:
First, tell us where you are and what you are doing.
Look at the people around you wherever you are, in your house, or watch out of the window, or watch TV for a couple of minutes, read from a newspaper/book and then let us know what people, actors, characters, etc. have done.

Context:  It's Saturday afternoon, 5:00pm and I am inside, preparing the lesson for you. The TV is on and my husband is watching the news.

What has just happened around:
I little kid has just cried out for her mom in the playground near my block. The ambulance has raced past, I've heard its siren.
The news reporter has announced the number of victims in Japan. I've also read on Yahoo news that UN forces have hammered targets in Lybia.

Now it's your time, tell us what you have done, heard, seen, read... etc.

Thank you so much for all of your questions. I hope my students will answer them when I see them next week. Please don't hesitate to add more !

I have made a slide show to show you our campus. You can see it (and listen to me) by clicking on the link here.
